Today’s Global Beef Industry Factoids

In attending the 2016 World Meat Congress conference in Uruguay, we learned a great deal of the latest events and data in today’s beef industry across the globe. Some highlights were on the countries that farmed the most beef cows vs. the most dairy cows. Did you know that over 66% of the cows throughout the entire continent of North America are beef cows? We also learned that the entire continent is considered feedlot land in the global beef finishing system. Meanwhile, Uruguay is known to be mainly pasture land for its cattle, hence, why our grass fed beef is labeled as “100% Grass Fed Beef”. See these WMC infographics for a closer look:
